Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 425°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup sugar and orange zest. Whisk into the flour mixture until evenly distributed.

  • Add the cubes of cold butter to the flour mixture. Using a pastry blender, a fork, or your hands work the butter into the flour. Mix until pea-sized chunks of the butter remain.

  • In a bowl, combine the milk, eggs, and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Add the fresh cranberries and gently mix with the dough. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Knead gently until the dough comes together.

  • Shape the dough into 2 small circles, each about 7-8 inches in diameter. Cut the dough into wedges and place on the prepared baking sheet. Brush each scone with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until the scones are light golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
